EDIT:  Shop my closet has been postponed to Sunday, please check back in then!



Good Friday morning, everybody!

So excited that I’m not getting sick this week (I lost my battle against the scratchy throat and ended up with a fever and nastiness last week but only briefly).

Oh! And I think I’ve made you all wait long enough to find out the winner of the Family Rules Printable download, so without further ado…

Tammy Eblin, you won!

I’ll be in touch very soon! : )

In other news, this weekend, I get to cohost a shower for my dear friend, Jolinda, who is, quite possibly, the most adorable and stylish pregnant mama I’ve ever seen.



Oh, and I was cracking up on this week’s Try-it Tuesday post, since the general consensus seemed to be, “Yeah, yeah, Abbie. That glitter tree you made was cute and all, but what we really liked was that reindeer!”


Ooooookay, then.

Several of you asked for the template, so here it is:

 reindeer head

(Right-click to save it to your comupter. You can stretch it to any dimensions necessary since you’ll be glittering over the black).

My very last announcement before we get to this week’s features is that, if all goes as planned (big “if” around here), we’ll be having a Shop My Closet sale tomorrow (Saturday, December 8) starting @ 9 AM.

{Think lots of cute jackets and coats!}

I took all the pics last week, but the aforementioned fever kind of sent that one off the rails.


I do believe that’s all the housekeeping business for today. So, now it’s time to check out just how incredibly, craftily awesome you guys are.

And since Christmas is soclose, how about a bunch of fun inspiration for your festive preparations?
